 It is important that we keep in mind those who are heroes and villains  in our efforts to protect the environment. Each year, this site takes a poll to find those most deserving of recognition in the Environmental Hall of Fame and the Environmental Hall of Shame. Nominations are now open for those  awards to those who have most affected the environment by words or action. With the ongoing  debate about  global warming and environmental regulations,  nominees should be easy to find.  Please suggest  at least one nomination  for each category by  putting your pick in the comment section . If you would, please include a short reason that your nominee should be chosen and suggest a suitable gift if they win.

The 2011 Environmental Hall of Fame Winners  was James Hansen for  playing a pivotal role in delaying a decision on the XL pipeline  whose construction  would greatly accelerate global warming. The 2011 Hall of Shame award went to Halliburton (Cheney),  for the Halliburton clause in the Clean Water Act. This clause provided a loophole that allows the composition of fracking chemicals to remain secret, thanks to Cheney. Past years winners and their gifts were:

                      Hall of Fame    -    Gift                                             

2010        RealClimate.org  - A recommendation from this site. ( Priceless)  

2009        Benno Hansen,  ThinkAboutIt Blogger - A Subscription to Science News.           

                      Hall of Shame    

2010         Koch Brothers - A petition to the Wizard of Oz for  the grant of a social conscience.

2009         SpaceGuy,  Newsvine Blogger - The movie Wall-E,  representing his view of the future of Earth.

Nominations will be taken until January 31st, 2013. The nominees will then be  listed  and this site will conduct a poll in February to determine the winner in each category.   You may suggest a suitable prize for your nominee. Please be imaginative, as particularly thoughtful or humorous  nominations will  be recognized and published on this site.
